The last time Lamborghini decided to launch something special, they ended up with the Veneno. One of the most futuristic and outlandish looking hypercar opened up the debate on how much far the Raging Bull can go in terms of the design. And now, when the Sant'Agata Bolognese based supercar manufacturer is ready to celebrate its 100 years, we can only think of what they can come up with!
Luckily, some of our media friends from France have managed to get hold of designs, which looks like the final patent images. Called the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4, the latest hypercar will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, slated to happen in March 2016. And going by the designs, we can only say - this car is not from our planet, but something out of the world!
Based on the Aventador, the Centenario LP770-4 is the "definition of a hyper car" as Lamborghini is calling it. Lamborghini will be launching this uber-exclusive piece of machine to celebrate 100th birth anniversary of the company's founder, Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini. While the initial looks aren't as crazy as the Veneno, we bet, it will look impressive in the metal.
Lamborghini will be focusing solely on performance than anything else and that's evident by the power figures. The Centenario LP770-4, as evident by the name itself, will produce a meaty 770 PS of power, coming out from a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine. Linked to an all-wheel drive system and a seven speed ISR transmission, the LP770-4 can touch 0-100kmph in as little as 2.7 seconds, with a top speed of 349kmph. If that's not crazy, what else will?
Remember the Maserati MC12, with long front and rear overhangs and the heavily sloping roofline? Well, the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 pretty much echoes the same design. Lamborghini has decided to build 20 coupes and 20 roadsters of this mean machine, and if you are planning to book one, sad news is, all 40 units are already sold out!
The Centenario will be priced at $2.38 million each, and it's still unconfirmed if this price is for the roadster or the coupe. But the Geneva show is just around the corner, so just stay tuned to look this machine in the flesh!
